    Well, since the dark days of 1988 when center-fire semi-auto rifles were restricted the elusive FN FAL was out of reach, no longer! Look what Watch Ryder buzzed in from the nearby FFL: SA 58 FN FAL! The Right Arm of the Free World descends, one of the Kings of the Battle Rifle calibers...

    The biggest buying blindspot right now are FALs. Everyone is so worried about their AR's and M1A's that there has been no real crazy price rise in FAL's. Receivers are still the same price, but there are not many of them. Mosins have gone up more than FAL's. Craziness. Just a heads up.

    Looking at buying a Daniel Defense complete upper, so who makes a decent lower receiver of somewhat equal value? The upper receiver I am looking at is the Daniel Defense AR-15 DDXV. ~ EDIT ~ Currently I own a Bushmaster AR that was made during the so called "assault rifle ban". A lot of the...

    Iv been told that i should not put a 'regular' scope on a FAL because the rifle will damage it when fired a lot. Does anyone here have any experience with using a scope on a FAL ?

    Lets say that I have a "friend" and this friend wants to add some modifications to his DS Arms SA58 FN/FAL. What would be some good mods to add to the rifle? The first thing is a scope mount. The rifle is just a standard SA58 with no rail or scope mount on the dust cover. From what I was...

    I am about to purchase a dependable SHTF rifle. I have narrowed my choice to between a DSA SA58 and a 922r converted Saiga 7.62 x 39. They both cost about the same. Ideally I would like to have both, but I can only afford one at the moment. If you have used either or both, please talk me into...

    I'm wanting to pruchase a .308 on an assault rifle platform. I own an Arsenal Saiga 7.62x39, but I'm wanting this .308 to be on a M4/M16 style platform. Armalite, Bushmaster, DPSM, and Red Rock seems to be the only manufacturers that are around the $1000.00 mark that I set for myself. Any of...

    Hi guys, My wife and I are in the market to buy some guns in order to defend our future Permaculture homestead out in the country. (However, we currently live in the city.) While we've already made our various handgun and shot gun selections, we now have to decide on a Battle Rifle for SHTF...

    I saw halkon mention that his team has several of these uppers and loves them in another thread..any of you have any experience. I really like the features and wanted something in 1:9 twist. I've made a guy an offer on a lightly used upper and hope to get it. Just wanted to know what to expect...

    Before we start on the range report of the DS Arms SA58, here is a little history on how we arrived at this point in time. October 21st 2010 I started a thread in the forum asking what is the best 308 rifle for the money. There were lots of suggestions thrown around, such as the Springfield...

    Got my FAL today,,,,,,, needless to say I'am impressed. What really got to me - I'am on a 3 day camping trip on the river, I call my wife to check in, and she tells me my rifle has arrived, but the dealer is closed for the day and will be out of town tomorrow. At this point and time I feel...

    Ok does anyone know the difference between the STG 58 Austrian FAL and the in-house SA 58 FAL that DSA sells on their website (besides the SA 58 being over $500 more)? I can only see cosmetic differences in the photos. STG 58...

    This coming summer, when I'm (hopefully) not broke, I'm going to be getting a .308 rifle. I've narrowed my choices down to one of three particular models: 1. PTR-91 2. FN-FAL 3. Howa 1500 Any advice on which one is the best? I like the PTR-91 the best so far, because I'm a die hard HK91 fan...
